About the Author: Margaret Meloni

I’ve been there and it can feel overwhelming. There came a point in my life where I began to realize that the people I loved were going to start dying. My mother-in-law was in her nineties, my parents were approaching their eighties, and my husband had already outlived his father. I had already said goodbye to others. How could I handle losing the people who I loved the most? I started to think that death was stalking me. But as I learned to accept that the Grim Reaper was just doing his job, I began to accept him as part of my network. I found a way to make friends with death. Click here and learn more about Margaret and her journey as an author.

As my loved ones started to die, I knew that death is nothing personal and I opened my heart to death. So can you.

This book will help you use Buddhist teachings to include death in your own spiritual practice. In bringing curiosity and an open heart, you can train for the death of your loved ones and, as a result, you will live more fully, with more compassion for others, and more peace for yourself.

Listen to Margaret discuss why we need to talk about death now and how living with death can actually bring you more joy.
"With her big heart of compassion, cracked open by the deaths of her husband, father and mother, Margaret encourages us to use death as a life coach. I’m touched by her unfailing commitment to kind understanding and love in the face of our ultimate destiny."
